Seymour FM’s transmitter site was burnt down and burgled earlier this month.

A 30-year-old Seymour man will face Seymour Magistrates’ Court after police charged him with a raft of charges relating to the burglary of Seymour FM’s transmitter station.

The man has been charged with burglary, theft, criminal damage by arson, trespass, going equipped to steal and possession of ammunition without a licence.

He will face Seymour Magistrates’ Court on October 8.

Three other males have been interviewed and released pending further enquiries.


Three Seymour teenagers have been identified and two interviewed after causing significant damage to St Mary’s College’s Mercy building.

At about 1.30am on July 7, the teenagers gained entry into the school and climbed the Mercy building, breaking a window.
